Hi everyone! I don't know about Texas, however Indiana and kentucky have several options:
1.Call Long term care facillities-- they will know how you can start the process.
2.we have an "Employment Guide" (free weekly publication) Nurse Aid schools
advertise there. $500-$600
3.Community colleges-- half the price of nurse aid schools, but only take about four weeks in the evening, or three during the day About $300 take a whole semester.
4.Red Cross-- hard to get into because they are cheap! only about $200
5.And a few nursing facilities will train to hire and certify- again hard to get into
Oh, research the nurse aid schools as some are much better than others and have "deals" worked out with some facilties to hire their new grads!
